Ok, seriously, why do people need to rush to Home Depot to buy new shovels each and every time it snows? We don't live in Florida people. Buy a shovel, use it, and keep it! They aren't disposable. I understand the need for more rock salt, or gas for your snow blower... but shovels? And what's with the milk, eggs and bread? Is everyone making french toast after they dispose of their used shovels?
But I digress.
We are supposed to get up to 24 inches of snow. Well, maybe only six, but maybe 24. I wish I were weather man, now there is a low pressure job. No one expects you to know a darn thing!
All I figure I need for such a snow day is some craft projects (I am hiding mood sand in the garage, and we have valentines and hundred day projects to finish), a good bottle of wine, and a few good recipes to keep the house smelling good.
Tonight, BS (Before Snow) we are having that Buffalo Fettuccine I was telling you about, but I changed it up a bit so I thought I would share my version with you. The original recipe is linked up in my previous post.
Buffalo Chicken Fettuccine
1 lb. fettuccine, fully cooked and drained (Save some cooking liquid to thin sauce)
1/2 of that roast chicken I made last week. I think 4 breasts would do or a half a rotisserie chicken)
salt & pepper, to taste
1 c. chicken stock
8 oz. cream cheese
1/4 c. hot sauce (more or less, depending on desired intensity. 1/4 c. will be mild to medium in flavor.)
1 c. Blue cheese
1. Shred the chicken with your fingers
2. In a saucepan, combine the cream cheese, hot sauce and chicken stock. Cook over medium-low heat until the cream cheese is completely melted.
3. Add the blue cheese and chicken to the saucepan, stir to combine, and then toss with the cooked fettuccine. Add cooking liquid from the pasta is the sauce is too thick. Or you can add more chicken stock. Salt and pepper to taste.
